You know, I think some people need to get out and really see what they have at home. I grew up in the suburbs of Chicago, spent 6 years in the Army stationed at Washington, DC, worked for over 10 years in the tundra of central Wisconsin before being reassigned to Topeka two years ago. Even after being laid off, given all the other places I've been, this area is pretty daarn good! I think some people around here are just happier bitching about where they are! It could be worse, you could be somewhere REALLY freezing ! Like Minnesota...
